Hi PCX'ers,
Just got this from Lockitt co. it's an ABUS max security chain 8ft noose chain, 12mm square links, core hardened possibly Boron alloy. The great feature is the noose which is a 14mm thick ring enabling you to pass the chain around a solid object such as a post or pillar. It's a bit too big for carrying around but great for home use which was my primary concern having no garage. I paired it with an Oxford BOSS alarmed disc lock with a 14mm boron alloy steel shackle, this I can carry around with me for some measure of portable security and with an alarm feature. The chain was $179.00 and the lock $109.00, more than I wanted to spend, but no price on resting easy at night either. I was wondering what you all have for securing your scooters here? It would also serve as a decent resource for those contemplating similar measures but unsure of what to buy.

Ooops, forgot to mention I'm not running the stock brake rotor just so ya knows. I doubt the boss could fit the stocker.

Great post!

Thanks for the info. . .

I've been using a Kryptonite Cable lock for years because they are light enough to carry around and long enough to snake through frames and then around anchors. There are all kinds of theories as to chain vs cable vs disc lock etc. . .. I had considered a "Bully Lock" alarm system if I got a new one https://bullylocks.com/alarm-locks/alarm-lock-with-pager.html

Wow never knew about the bully, thanks, and what a great idea and it has a pager too. See, learned something already.

The steering lock isn't enough? You must live in a terrible place, where men would lift scooters!

Just about any decent size city will have that type of inhabitant somewhere. Fort Lauderdale to Miami is one vast metropolis, the population of South Florida is 6.7 million, thus many vehicular thieves are likely scattered about. Better safe than sorry

If I had a concern I would use a GPS tracker hidden. It costs a yearly service fee but if the bike is moved it calls your cellphone immediately . There are free apps however if you hunt a little. You can track its location on map program app on your phone.You can also use a proximity sensor that sends a signal if anyone is within 5 ft of the bike. Its range adjustable . Openness and visibility are important if you use a chain. Remember, a professional can use a quickie saw and get through any lock /chain in a minute or two. Its a deterrent for the kids though.

Woo, that's a lot of bread for a lock. I didn't know Fort Lauderdale was such a dicey neighborhood!

I'm lucky that I hardly ever ride anywhere dangerous enough that I need supplementary locking for my bike. You remind me though, I'm thinking of going to a Chicago rally soon, and to a layman, my bike is MUCH more attractive than a 50 year-old Vespa.

Just peace of mind, no price on sleep. Nothings impossible to crack but they'd make some noise doing it
